Certified trainer Steve Burden says it’s safe (on a treadmill) and a great way to use more muscles. “It also offers a way to fit cardio into shorter sessions, as making your heart work harder means you won’t have to perform the activity as long to achieve the same results.”
He says you need more focus to walk backward and this will improve your coordination and balance. Standing straight keeps muscles and joints aligned.
Are you ready to put your best foot backward?
